This month, Ed Rapisardi has asked former TCFF member Russ Hampton to speak about fishing in the Amazon and the El Rio Negra (The Black River). This should be an excellent program and we’re looking forward to visiting with Russ once again.
A great time was had by the ten TCFF members who attended the saltwater overnight trip to Capt. Hiram's Resort in Sebastian, FL. The fishing was great, but the catching not so much!
Tom Green has planned the following outings --
November 11th -- 8:00am, Venetian Gardens, Leesburg. Lake Harris Fly Casting Rodeo and fishing- Boats, kayaks & fishing from the bank. There will be no saltwater trip due to Thanksgiving.
December 9th -- 8:00am, Crystal Bay. Kayaks will launch at SR-19 across from City Hall. No Freshwater trip due to Christmas.
For information and dates for any of the upcoming Club trips, please see our website calendar page or contact Tom Green.
Pete Smith is coordinating day trips for those of you who would like to get out and fish during the week in hopes of encouraging others to share similar information when they planned a day of fly fishing. These will not be formal trips with meeting times, lunch plans, etc. – just letting guys know when and where he plans to splash the yak in case anyone else wants to do the same – all are welcome. If you would like to get on the notification email list, please contact Pete at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pete Zito, a former commercial fly tier from Roscoe, New York, and friend of the club has lots of fly tying materials (dubbing, hackle necks, etc.), threads, tinsel and hooks for sale as he no longer ties commercially. He will be getting more in the near future from his good friend and business partner Eric Leiser. If anyone is interested in purchasing any items, please give Pete a call at 352-259-8750 to set up an appointment. All proceeds will be donated to The Parkinson’s Fight Group.
In the meantime...go fish! -- Larry
